Q: How are people actually voting for in China?

I heard people in China get the chance to vote at one point or another, but most often don't really know who those people are. Are they even real?

The voting procedure in China is a complex system with many layers (or committees) in between.  You do vote directly for persons to represent you at the local level.  Then those elected form a committee and deliberate to name one of them as their representative on a higher one.  And thus, goes from local level, to municipal level, to province level, and finally arrive to the central government.  But there, it is not only one committee, but at least three more in ascending authority.  And finally, the top one will select officials to become President, Premier, and all other top positions. 

Those selected will serve for 10 years, and can not run for re-election once their term expires. 

Please bear in mind that I tried hard to simplify a very complex procedure as much as possible so it could be easily undertood.

That's basically my understanding of it too, minus mentions of bribery and corruption all the way up.

My understanding is that you can vote people out, not in.

China is basing their new election model on American Democracy.

 

The votes will be counted by Premier Election Solutions (formerly Diebold) using the world's most accurate electronic methods. In order to protect voter confidentiality, no record of votes will be kept and the system is impossible to audit.

Nobody gets to vote in China! The government appoints who goes to office not the local commoners.

A:Try me with that Q&advice: 'read the Contract!'Tits and others are right: 'read the Contract and ask questions, before you sign it!'What else could I tell OP/you? Call your mom? Chinese will take an advantage of foreigner by pretending their English understanding is different than ours is. In their way 'they just negotiate'. There's nothing wrong with 'negotiating' in China. However, we (I do) understand that as 'cheating'.I seek Gov.'s help very often! Too often, since I am an English teacher without any Contract disrespect in 7 years of working in China. Why do I need Gov.'s help in Contract respect, if I perform without flops? There are only two parties on the Contract. By my assumption, if B honors Contract, A should do the same.Latest example at my full-time gig: 'I arrived to the office half an hour before scheduled classes, and rep. told me I am excused from work for 3 following days. 15' before my scheduled classes, I am told classes are canceled. Good, but I must receive full pay same as I would attend classes.Rep's reply: 'Chinese teachers at our School are paid per classes they perform, so you also won't get paid, because School canceled classes!' He didn't mention '... canceled classes on time', what I wouldn't necessary object, if I would get notice at least a week before.Now, management can do that to Chinese and other foreigners similar to OP and you, but not to me! I read and understand Contract, and get everything it belongs to me. School is now aware, that they are better off, if they schedule my classes elsewhere, because pay for not working by School's wish is warranted by Contract.I am required by present Contract to resign for any reason with 3-m RN. OK, but that also means I must receive School's notice about renewing the Contract in April or 3 months before the RP expiration, not 10 days before RP expiration as it's Schools custom in China. Try and find new RP sponsor in 10 days, me being Non-native English....Looking forward to that 'show' in April next year. School just demand 3-m RN, but they aren't aware of 'mirror effect' of that requirement.In my previous Contract, I sat in my room for 30 days, because School's excuse: 'managers are too busy to assemble your timetable'. OK, but I received full pay for the entire month of not working. At chat with SAFEA, I told Gov. that is School's Contract violation, and I can resign, because party A promised with Contract I will have 60 classes per month with what SAFEA agreed. I submitted Resignation notice in the middle of 2nd year's Contract and:- kept my RP intact;- received all necessary docs. from the School (with SAFEA's help) for RP transfer to the new employer;- got some 20k in late pay from the School.That all was just because I am aware of the Contract meaning, which I also respect 100%. How's my English? -- icnif77
